Put on Your Dancing Shoes – Dash Wins 2 Medals at IT World Awards
It’s a pretty cool thing that we’ve been fortunate enough to be recognized for our products and services. When your customers, peers, and the industry’s media all agree that what you’re doing is worthwhile, it’s a confirmation that your hard work is well invested. Recently, however, we got a notice that really turned the traditional honor and pride that an award win brings with it paradigm right on its head. By winning a pair of medals at the Network Products Guide IT World Awards, we’ve reached a milestone for our premiere VoIP for business platform, Dash. So now that we’ve got these fancy new awards to celebrate, it’s time to dust off the dancing shoes because there’s also a gala affair to attend!
The Devil is in the Details
We’d never turn away any of our awards up until this point, but what makes these two wins noteworthy is the size of the field involved. Dash was put against the best communications products in the world, covering companies of all sizes and in categories well beyond business phone systems. In spite of that stiff competition, Dash walked away with a Gold for Best Communications Service and a Bronze for Best New Technology Product. Therefore, while we’re confident that each notch on our belts for industry recognition is one we would never deny, this one definitely marked a new level of accomplishment.
Why the Red Carpet Treatment?
As it turns out, these awards come with them an invite to one of the most exclusive events in Silicon Valley, too. The Network Product Guide’s 12th Annual IT World Awards gala affair will be a who’s-who of the communications technology industry. Held at in on of the “Big Four” hotels atop the posh and historic Nob Hill in San Francisco later this month, this event will be a memorable and extravagant affair. And that’s where it gets a bit tricky. The reality is, even sharing these awards is a bit of a debate internally because, while we’re plenty proud of our accomplishment, we didn’t get into this for praise. We are more interested in helping our customers launch, improve, or grow their businesses, and as cliché as it may sound to say it, their success is all the praise we need. So, truth be told, we might have to just take a raincheck on the fancy dinner and let some more dust collect on those dancing shoes. After all, we have plenty of more work ahead of us.
Thank you to everyone who trusts us to give them the very best in a business phone service. Your support is what makes all of these awards possible, and your endorsement is what makes the work worthwhile.
